We can’t wait to show you how to make these crepe paper lilac flowers today! Overall, they are an easy paper flower to make. But there are lots of little flowers involved so it’s pretty time-consuming.

Since there are so many flowers to form, a cutting machine will come in handy if you have one! For this project, we cut our crepe paper with our Cricut Maker and SVG file. But of course, you can also cut your lilacs by hand with our PDF flower template.

When you’re ready to make your flower, just follow the steps below. We will keep the video up indefinitely, so you can watch it as many times as you need to while crafting your crepe paper lilac flowers. And, of course, reach out to us if you have any questions.

Happy crafting, friends!
